This Fri is Nat'l Play Hooky From Work Day

Well not really, but it sounded good...
so if you, cough cough sniffle sniffle, feel something coming on...
The best way to beat it is fresh air....
So how about a nice mtb ride
Carbon Cyn regional park this friday 3/16 @ 9AM

The plan is up Northridge - then down Sycamore and up Telegraph and back down... or go down bovidian to south ridge

No hookie for me, I'm afraid. I fear karma lashings if I do - i.e. then I'll really get sick and need one extra sick day and not have it because I played hookie!

I think you should feel a big sniffle coming on and just take the next two weeks off!

Last Friday was a "hookie" day for me, and I used it to drive to Solvang for the century, so can't do it this week!

Best Regs,

Uh uh, no way you're perfectly capable! Besides, I don't own a tow rope.
Now, if anyone else wants to bring one, I won't complain, I may just attach myself to it!

yeah but better now than in the summer when its hot and humid and your clothes are sticking to your body. I don't remember it being that way when I lived there but I guess when you're young you don't notice that kinda stuff.

It is?! How convenient, 'cause I already put in for the day off a couple weeks ago.

Gonna be suffering up GMR on Friday morning. Wish I coulda made it out there to pre-ride sometime in the past few weeks. Haven't been out there for probably at least a year.

Any other SoCal BF riders riding in the San Dimas Stage Race? I'll be in orange/white/black Team Redlands kit, riding a crappy red Specialized.

What's a good time for a Cat V in the time-trial?

Just a reminder
9AM tomorrow!

Meet at the EAST END of the Carbon Canyon Regional Park parking lot. (after entering the park, turn left and continue to the end)

Directions: Take the 57 Fwy to Lambert Rd. Head East on Lambert Rd. until it turns into Carbon Canyon Rd. (142). The entrance to Carbon Canyon Park is on the right-hand side, (approx. 3 mi. East of the 57 Fwy).
You need 3 1dollar bills for the entrance fee!
